After playing Evil Dead 2, we decided we wanted to try this game. It was just the two of us, and this game has a minimum of four players. We paid for the four spots and gave it a shot. We were not disappointed.
We have not played the Arkham Horror board game so we didn't get the Easter eggs in this game. That's okay. The set design was awesome. The puzzles were challenging and fun. We needed two hints and one of the puzzles didn't quite work the way it should have. In the end, we needed a couple of extra minutes to finish. (By the way, this is not a scary/horror game.)
The lights are a bit dim for ambiance, but the great thing about Hourglass is that they always provide flashlights in the rooms. In fact, in each room we played, there were 8+ flashlights. If one has low batteries, you just pick up another. I wish all places did this. Also, they always give you something to write on. Again, all places should do this.
In the end, we think this was our favorite room of the three we played at Hourglass.
